Notice Email hacking

Dear All

 

I lately had an email hacking over the weekend on my one personal email address, which is my Comcast.net address; some of you already had its phishing letter.

So I spent umpteen hours to figure out how it happened with the Comcast team as well as my University team but didn’t get much help/understanding so far.

Since I have over 3,000 patients with vascular malformation-related problems throughout over 50 countries, I have been having numerous email communications with their physicians as well as the patients and their families so that I was keenly aware of my vulnerable situation but it happened despite my extreme caution.

So, if anyone wants to communicate with me for personal affairs, please use bblee38@gmail.com with preference to bblee38@comcast.net till we could figure it out more clearly.

BB

 

P.S. I copy the email letter from our University team with access to video training on this similar issue of phishing.

Good afternoon,

 

The FBI has issued a Flash Alert and warned all healthcare entities to be on the lookout for the Conti ransomware.  The Conti ransomware has impacted over 16 healthcare entities and 400 other organizations worldwide in the past 12 months.  This malware is updated frequently by its operators and has the ability to stop enterprise-grade security tools.  Attackers use a phishing email containing a link to Google Drive or other embedded links to infiltrate targets.  Once the malware is downloaded, it moves through the organization quickly. 

 

We ask all employees to remain diligent about suspicious emails and use the “Report Message” button in Outlook to report them to the Security Team.  Do not forward suspicious emails to your colleagues.  We also encourage MFA staff to watch a short 4 minute YouTube video training about phishing.
